Northwestern Learning

Northwestern Teaching and Research 

The Block supports teaching with visual art across Northwestern campuses. Through our work with exhibitions, collections, and programming we aspire to connect with every department and school at Northwestern and to make The Block meaningful to your work and to your students. Faculty who have worked with The Block come from departments as diverse as Anthropology, Art History, English, and Music, and Schools as diverse as Engineering, Law, and Journalism. Connect with us to develop projects and exchange ideas on how to incorporate museum experiences into teaching and research. 

Northwestern Student Connections

Northwestern students are deeply involved with the life of the museum. They drive the artistic conversation by curating exhibits, participating in strategic planning, contributing to publications, creating new communications platforms, and working directly with resident artists. These experiences invite new ideas and perspectives, inviting students to think critically and acquire skills that will enhance their personal and professional lives.
